Ahoy there.

Nice model. Nice boat too. VBG LOL Notice the port torpedo is aimed directly at the 37 mm anti-tank gun on the foredeck?

Cheers from Peter

Yeah, Peter....You don't see too many of those rare inward-training tubes. Probably wasn't a good idea to be on the bow 37mm when that baby went hot.
